Wat Klang 

Wat Klang

Wat Chimawat/Wat Majimawas or Wat Klang is on the far south-eastern part of Mukdahan province in the village of Don Tan along the Mekong River. The temple is mainly known for its famous bronze drum, which dates back 2000-3000 years (depending on the source). The drum had just been placed behind glass and behind bars and was hard to see as the glass had fogged up.
